... i'm not sure how i missed reading this, but with very, VERY little gains on parrying i thought i'd try some research ... on nearly any website (including this one) that i checked, when looking up parrying (wish bushido skill) it says you should use a two handed sword... i used to think it said a two handed WEAPON... is this correct? i am using fencing, and i hope i don't have to switch to swordsmanship. i once posted an article about this here: parry v.s. bushido and i had THOUGHT i was at an understanding. if anyone has any definite info on if the weapon has to be swordsmanship, please let me know. thanks.
